According to recent newspaper reports, a driver of a BMW was fatally stabbed by a “rich-hater”. The “rich-hater” Zhao Mougang was recently released from prison, where he developed very strong anti-social and anti-rich opinions.

The hatred of the rich has already become one of the social trends in China, there is even a short, rather inspiring piece: If his neighbor suddenly comes into money and buys himself a fancy car, an American would say: ” I need to save up to buy myself an even nicer car”. A Japanese would say: “I have to research and analyze how he managed to get himself that car. A Frenchman would say: “I’d love to borrow his car, the ladies would love it”. A Chinese would say “I gotta go smash his car”

The poor cannot stomach ill-gotten wealth

One of the principal reasons for such hatred of the rich is not because the poor’s current status, but rather because of the perception that the wealth of the business and government elites is ill-gotten. From ancient times, men have loved wealth and money, this is not to be criticized. However, “a man of character may appreciate wealth only reasonably”. Where does the wealth come from? Are these natural-born talents, like the Eight Immortals, each and every one has his own way to wealth and riches.
